The Gun

GUN HILL, Nr Horam, TN21 0JU

Felons and miscreants were brought to face justice in this local courthouse centuries ago; today discerning drinkers and diners seek out this rambling, steeply-roofed old inn. Located high in the Sussex Downs, extensive views reward those who sit in the tranquil tree-shaded garden with a Musket ale or Biddenden cider in hand. Inside, lots of beams, wooden floors and open log fireplaces picked out in old brick characterise an interior dressed with rustic furnishings. A beautifully panelled dining room is a particular draw, whilst numerous hideaway niches and corners offer dining privacy. When surveying the menu, some get no further than the tapas sharing board with its wild boar Scotch egg, chipolatas and prunes, chilli tiger prawns, devilled whitebait, and flatbread along with a salad of apple, celery and walnuts. Wood-fired sourdough pizzas are also much in demand. Beer-battered fish with chips followed by Bramley apple and quince crumble reassures the traditionalists.
